Catalogue Note

Georgius Jacobus Johannes van Os was the son of still life painter Jan van Os (see Lot 74) and, like his father, was strongly influenced by the works of Jan van Huysum (1682-1749). This sumptuous still life, combining flowers and fruit set against a wooded landscape, is amongst his best works, with the composition and handling extremely close to that of his father.
